MWCC Course: Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Program

  • This event has passed.

The Maryland World Class Consortia’s Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification Program (LSSGB) provides detailed instruction on, and guidance through, the Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control (DMAIC) Roadmap.  The Certified LSSGB will be able to identify the right projects, collect specific data, analyze the data with powerful Lean and/or Six Sigma tools, identify root causes, put solutions in place and set the new process up for both sustainability and continuous improvement.

The LSSGB Program consists of 5 learning units covered over a 4-week period.   Because this is delivered via Zoom, candidates for LSSGB Certification meet 4 hours per day online to participate in training sessions and exercises covering the DMAIC Roadmap.

Program Cost

Option 1 – Standard Course.  The fee for the standard Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Program is $3,500 per person.  This tuition covers all academic modules and course training materials for each academic day.  Students will receive a training guide and “The Lean Six Sigma Pocket Tool Book: A Quick Reference Guide to 100 Tools for Improving Quality and Speed”.

Ø  Participants who successfully complete the program will be presented with a Certificate of Completion.

Option 2 – DMAIC Project Mentoring and full Certification.  Additional $1300 per person.  Those opting for the DMAIC Project Mentoring and full Certification will receive an additional six hours per student (remote mentoring activities).

Ø  Participants undertaking the “DMAIC Project Mentoring and Full Certification”  will be certified by HartePro Consulting and the MWCC provided they successfully complete the program.

Ø  Participants are strongly encouraged to plan improvement projects in their home facility between monthly classroom meetings beginning after Module 2.  Time necessary to conduct these projects can be significant, depending on the scope and level of difficulty selected by the student and their sponsor/senior leader, and should be considered when planning business commitments while the course is in session.  Please contact us if you have questions regarding project planning and applied learning.


We are excited to announce that through a grant from the Maryland Department of Commerce, this training is eligible for 50% reimbursement of the program training costs if you are a Maryland manufacturing or technology company. 

Please contact Joyce La Padula at 410-960-3785 or via email at for reimbursement criteria.
